Time Capsule Discovery

By Laura Seddon

Our builders have made an astonishing discovery of a time capsule hidden in the historic synagogue’s walls. The glass jar, complete with its wax seal intact, was discovered by a builder hidden deep in a wall cavern next to the Museum’s Ark (the holy cupboard which houses the Torah Scrolls).  Filled with money, synagogue papers and newspapers, these original artefacts are dated from around the time when the synagogue was first founded in 1873.
